Keep plugging on!  You should see something on VCDS if any major plug is not connected.  But it is no good just looking just at the engine fault codes alone.  If you can get a complete scan of everything on the whole van something might give away a clue.  If all codes simply point to a loss of terminal 15 supply then you just have to follow the whole electrical path from the ignition switch onwards.

Never had to deal with glowplugs on a 2.5.  It does sound like you are missing a switched supply.  There is a relay for that in the Ebox.  You could check check for current at the ignition switch and then go on to the relay.  You need a wiring diagram.  However I would go over every single electrical thing you disconnected once again including earths, even to the extent of disconnecting and reconnecting.  

I know this sounds obvious but do you definitely have both +ve battery cables on.  If I remember one of them is loose and can flip off unnoticed when you disconnect leaving the main starter cable only.

Took a look yesterday and everything thing looks good in that main box under the battery. Id say its never been opened. Checked the fuses in the cab as well and there all ok. When turning the ing on there is no power to the glow plugs eaither im pretty sure the injectors and glow plugs come from the same loom ?

I'd say something is unplugged.  I think that code could also apply to any switched supply (terminal 15) fault as well as a missing earth somewhere.  If your code reader allows it - are there any codes in any other controllers or can it only check engine codes?

Worth looking at the really big fuses in the E box which is underneath the battery if you have checked both the cab and small fuse box next to the battery, especially if you shorted anything during the work.  


Check that twist connection for the injector loom again it's quite common for people to get that wrong!
